From broadcasters to architects and engineers, virtually every industry uses SketchUp to model and animate 3D objects and environments.

Learn how to model in SketchUp Pro!

Show what a new building would look like on a real map.  Recreate and fly through the scene of an accident.  Visualize your set before you build it-complete with simulated weather conditions for the day of your shoot.  And get a head start with the 3D Warehouse, which is full of pre-built models of famous buildings and common objects.

Our two-day SketchUp training covers the entire authorized curriculum, from how to open the software to the most advanced techniques.  By the end of our course, you’ll be able to create, animate, and display 3D environments at a sophisticated level.

Architectural visualizations are an incredible way to promote or demonstrate your product.  Take your SketchUp model(s) to an entirely new level in our optional  Lumion 3D course.
